The double bass is so much more than just an orchestral foundation when it is played by Nabil Shehata: the winner of the 2003 ARD Music Competition and professor at the Munich University of Music is one of his instrument’s most renowned virtuosos. But Nabil Shehata is a lot more than that, as he proves in his GENUIN debut release: a full-blooded musician who knows how to best bring out the unique colors and qualities of his instrument – whether in original works by Glière and Koussevitzky or arrangements of cello works by Bruch and Brahms. Both rugged and sweet-sounding, brilliant and down-to-earth – for lovers of distinctive sound!

The Strad
The brothers Shehata – Karim’s sensitive contribution at the piano deserves special praise – take broad tempos but sustain them with no slackening of tension. Aided by a vivid recording, Nabil’s clear articulation makes even the notorious final fugue easy to follow.
